house design

You are looking at pictures of a house Simon Dale built for his family in Wales. It was built by him and his father in law with help from passers by and visiting friends.

A script from Simon Dale’s website reads:

The house was built with maximum regard for the environment and by reciprocation gives us a unique opportunity to live close to nature. Being your own (have a go) architect is a lot of fun and allows you to create and enjoy something which is part of yourself and the land rather than, at worst, a mass produced box designed for maximum profit and convenience of the construction industry. Building from natural materials does away with producers profits and the cocktail of carcinogenic poisons that fill most modern buildings.

Why they did it?

It’s fun. Living your own life, in your own way is rewarding. Following our dreams keeps our souls alive.
